SOCIETY FOR ENDOCRINOLOGY AWARD CITATIONS AND JOURNAL SCOPES
The Dale Medal
The Dale Medal is awarded, on an annual basis, to a member of the scientific community in recognition of outstanding studies, which have changed our understanding of endocrinology in a fundamental way. The Dale Medal is the highest accolade bestowed by the Society.
The Transatlantic Medal
The Transatlantic Medal is awarded, on an annual basis, to a North American endocrinologist judged to have made significant contributions to the discipline. The award of this Medal was instituted to promote connections between endocrinology in the United Kingdom and North America.
The Medal of the Society for Endocrinology
The Medal of the Society for Endocrinology is awarded, on an annual basis, to an endocrinologist working in the UK who is a Society member, in recognition of outstanding studies.
The Starling Medal
The Starling Medal is awarded, on an annual basis, to honour a mid-career basic, clinical or translational scientist who is a member of the Society and whose work has contributed to exceptional scientific advances in endocrinology. Candidates are normally expected to hold an academic position up to the level of Senior Lecturer or Reader or equivalent (below the level of professor), be no more than 15 years post receipt of their first doctoral research degree (PhD or MD) and to have carried out the majority of their work in the UK or Ireland.
The European Medal
The European Medal is awarded, on an annual basis, to a European endocrinologist judged to have made significant contributions to the discipline. The award of this Medal was instituted to promote connections between endocrinology in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe.
The International Medal
The International Medal is awarded on an annual basis to an endocrinologist who is currently based in an institution outside the UK and has spent most of their working life outside the UK. The award recognises highly significant contributions to the discipline and promotes international collaboration between endocrinologists.
Journal of Endocrinology publishes original research articles, rapid communications and reviews. Its focus is on endocrine physiology and metabolism, including hormone secretion; hormone action; biological effects. The journal considers basic and translational studies at the organ, tissue and whole organism level.
Journal of Molecular Endocrinology publishes original research articles, rapid communications and reviews. Its focus is on molecular and cellular mechanisms in endocrinology, including gene regulation; cell biology; signalling; mutations; transgenesis. The journal considers basic and pathophysiological studies at the molecule and cell level.
Endocrine-Related Cancer publishes all aspects of basic, translational and clinical research in hormone-dependent cancers, and in cancers of endocrine organs. The journal publishes reviews, together with original research papers of exceptional quality. Case reports are only considered if they are of extraordinary interest and reveal a new mechanism of disease.
Clinical Endocrinology publishes original articles and reviews focusing on the clinical aspects of endocrinology, including the clinical application of molecular endocrinology. It features reviews, original papers, commentaries, cases of the month, clinical questions, book reviews and letters.
Endocrine Connections publishes original quality research in all areas of endocrinology, with a focus on papers that have relevance to its related and intersecting disciplines and the wider biomedical community. The journal considers basic, translational and clinical studies.
